Best Laptop of 2012 winner: Apple MacBook Pro with Retina Display 15.6-inch

TrustedReviews Awards 5
Falling into the “money no object” category, the MacBook Pro with Retina Display starts at £1500. But what a laptop you get for the cash. Alongside its incredible 2,880 x 1,800 pixel Retina Display, it’s even slimmer than the non-Retina model, packs some seriously powerful components and hardware design that remains unbeaten.

TrustedReviews Awards
With a large 5-inch screen, TomTom’s HD Traffic engine and faster route finding than non-dedicated SatNavs the TomTom Go Live 1005 World proves that there’s still room in the world for the trusty dedicated SatNav. Although not dramatically different from 2011’s winner, it’s a fantastic GPS tool
